I think that it is incredibly hard to come to a solution for a problem as large as the conflict between Israelis and Palestinians. I felt my first twinge of confusion when i learned that when the Israeli's were displaced during WWII they invaded and settled in Palestine, resulting in the displacement of Palestinians. I find it strange that people flee for their safety and choose someone else's home as their destination and end up hurting them. I don't see why they could not have found a way to incorporate Israelis into Palestine without displacing Palestinians and causing so much conflict. conflict resolution is so weak when this type of thing happens, there have been many conflicts in history due to the invasion of new people and displacement of the ones living there. I honestly do not know what can be done to prevent this or solve it except for the Israelis and Palestinians to learn to live together. It is so incredibly selfish and horrible how the Israeli army invaded Palestinian land and turned them into prisoners of their own homeland, stripping them of rights and freedom. I do not see why this happens so much in history and why people seem to still think its okay. Perhaps if they cannot live together in harmony there should be a divide in the state, giving half of it to Palestinians and half to Israelis so that they can each control their own area and limit the fighting. This probably would not work particularly well either, but without telling one of the groups to vacate the state, this is the only solution i can see.
